Basic description of the activity: Two mobile robots measuring 2 ft wide x
3 ft long x 2 ft tall that operate within a fenced in activity area
measuring approximately 16 ft x 20 ft, with two podium-like control panel
locations consisting of panels with joysticks and pushbuttons that are
used to operate the robots.
Frequency and codes are very different for each robot so both can operate
without stray signals from each other or other devices in the area
Four ball and foam block type activity challenges will be part of the
exhibit and will be interchangeable in mere minutes. Two will be a sports
type activity contests between robots as human users guide them; and two
are to be basic dexterous training tasks.
Each robot also has a number of electronically animated elements such as
LED light arrays, which illuminate frosted and clear acrylic plastic
elements such as crystals, columns and the domes. The columns also serve
as a status indicator by lighting up in a particular order and color
corresponding to the user’s movement selections. The robots and control
panels also generate a number of interactive sound effects. In addition to
these elements the control panels speak an introduction for the activity
and prompt the user during the activity. For the two sports activities the
control panels will also keep score and announce when a user wins.
The wrist function consists of up and down movements and the hand has open
and close movements.
The wheeled bases also have clockwise, counterclockwise, forwards and
backwards movements. The robots also feature a number of logical limits
and slip clutches which allows the robots to stop moving when they lightly
impact an obstacle such as the railing or the other robot. The slip
clutches also prevent the robots from exerting excessive force. These
features conserve battery resources, reduce wear on the robots components
and in general are part of the safety features.
The robots are rechargeable over night and will easily run for a full day
of heavy use between recharging.
Both come with chargers, a user manual with easy maintenance and setup
instructions. The purpose of the exhibit is to impart a number of
educational principles in robotics in a fun and memorable way. These
include, but are not limited to, sensors, limits, electromechanical
systems and components. As support for the educational aspects the exhibit
is also supplied with a series of diagrams and illustrations showing how
specific parts operate.

exhibits have a long service life expectancy, with many units still
functioning smoothly at 10 years plus. They are so easy to maintain and
repair, that it usually takes regular museum staff only 15 to 20 minutes.
